friday march 15 | fuego

Two months ago, LA JUNTA crew were approached with the idea of producing an additional night (every third Fri) at El Dorado DTLA. We bounced the idea back and forth among our team, but the predominant concern was that doing back-to-back Fridays at the same venue may see us spreading our community of followers too thin, especially with an already full Spring schedule and another potentially busy summer fast approaching. So instead, we’ve decided to offer up that extra night to a solid, young up-and-coming deejay who is well versed in Latin music and pretty much anything that will heat up a dance floor. He accepted, the management said ‘Sure’ and FUEGO was born. And to help our new friend, DJ RAW, spark it, DEGRUVME and yours truly GLENN RED will be holding down guest deejay duties in the main room! I even agreed to do his first flyer, as seen here. I kinda like how it turned out 馃檪

To add to the litness, La Junta’s own YUKICITO, who’d been dreaming up an event where he could mix and dance to his favorite kinds of music–Brazilian forr贸 and classic cumbia from Colombia, Peru and Mexico–will be taking over the back Stowaway Room (the Coco Lounge on our PI脩A nights) on these same 3rd Fridays! Joining him is one of the originators of Forr贸 in LA, and one of my favorite selectors/old partner at the event called ‘Ecl茅ctica’, Mr. Reyes Rodriguez. So come check out the debut of FUEGO…it’s gonna be fire!
